DVD Wtr & IDE Cable type Help ?

Hello, Can someone tell me if a 40pin IDE Ribbon cable should be used or would there be any gain by using a 80pin IDE cable on the DVD Wtr.

Thanks in advance for any advice here.

80 pin better but your board needs to support 80 pin all modern boards do

My old 3.5 yrs ECS does not.

I use a Asus A7V8X-X so thats modern even though this board has been around for over a year now.

I had an old 40pin on mine and had it changed to an 80 pin and it works much better, had a few failures on the 40 pin but since it was changed none
